Anyone had much experience with dyspraxia?

Recommended Posts

Earlier this year I was told that my 5 year old son has dyspraxia after a couple of years of working with schools and all sorts of specialists for my son.

 

He struggles at school and he tells me that he just gets everything wrong and the teacher is just busy so cant help him. I find this very upsetting to hear this from my son and after I dont know how many hours of research to see what help he can get I am no further along. My son is by no means thick, he knows the end goal but he struggles to sequence things correctly and is the most clumsy kid you would ever come across.

 

Are there any other parents that have children that also have dyspraxia that could share their experiences or anyone that has a brother or sister that could give me some advise. Dyspraxia is apparently common but ive never actually spoken to anyone that knows much about it really other that professionals and most of the time I dont think they know much themselves.

 

 

Thanks

Yeah, my brother has this. He struggled a lot in school, had to attend some different classes in school and college. He seems a little slow to catch on with things and learn but as he got older it's got a little better. He is now an apprentice electrician in his last year and is doing amazing. If there's anything you want to ask or want me to ask him let me know x

My youngest daughter was diagnosed with dyslexia at 6, and last year the SENCO at her school told me she has 'aspects of dyspraxia' too. I can't help much more than that, I am aware she lacks co-ordination and is quite clumsy (she is 8, nearly 9 and unable to ride a bike, amongst other things) but I tend to just let her get on with things, and help out when I can, if she wants me to. Luckily the SENCO is her class teacher this year so that helps. Good luck.
